My Journey to God

God as Artist

God paints the proud pillows of clouds
They move over jagged peaks in wispy motion
The colors of the rising sun are reflected
The rays brighten and the shadows diminish.
God as artist

God brightly colors the wildflower hues
His color strokes diversify the perceptive eye
High clouds pass overhead casting shadows
From God’s palette come hues of dark and light.
God as Artist

His creative brush strokes accentuate diversity
Blue sky and green of woodland offer contrast
His brushstrokes capture the power of storms
Picking up grey black sky billowing and moving.
God as artist

Diminishing light heightens the yellow lightning
Wind heralds the strength of the impending storm
From God’s own palette come hues of grey and black
Capturing the color of rain falling down in strips.
God as Artist
